My favourite film is The Sound of Music. It takes place in Austria in 1938. It’s the story of Maria and the von Trapp family. Maria goes to look after the seven children. Their father, Captain von Trapp, tells Maria to make them study hard. However, she takes them out to play. In the end, the captain falls in love with Maria and marries her. Julie Andrews plays Maria. She’s very pretty and she sings beautifully. The best part of the film is the singing. It’s very beautiful and interesting.
